    I think it would be unfair to have your entire family there but exclude some of his. Regardless of how they behave. You should consider yourself lucky that most of the family understands that the kids are hell and are ok with excluding them. I wouldn’t push my luck.

    I voted yes for the cousin. It has nothing to do with the bratty nieces and nephews, and everything to do with she would be the only one in your family not coming otherwise.

    I voted it’s not as simple as yes and no.  Here’s why:

    Your family has expressed that they are happy you won’t be inviting “the kids.”  You also TOLD the adults in both of your families that IF you had a flower girl or ring bearer, then only those kids would be invited.  If you didn’t get any complaints when you told them that, then I don’t see why they would give you trouble for inviting your adorable little cousin now.

    If you are still worried, however, I suggest you do the following:  Have your cousin be the flower girl and have her there for the ceremony.  Then either hire a sitter for her for the entire reception, or allow her to eat at the reception and then go to a sitter.  This way, it’s still an “adult only” reception, but your little cousin is still involved and your whole family will be there. You also won’t have to deal with the brats.  If you’re having a late reception, a six-year-old will probably not be able to stay up for the whole reception anyway!
